TV picks for July 10:  "Welcome to Sweden,” "Working the Engels,” Leah Remini

  • Updated: July 9, 2014 - 1:39 PM

Greg Poehler stars in “Welcome to Sweden.”

Stockholm syndrome

Looks like Amy Poehler isn’t the only one in the family with a sharpened funny bone. Brother Greg Poehler is quite charming in “Welcome to Sweden,” a fish-out-of-water sitcom based on what happened to him when he moved to Stockholm to be with his girlfriend. Lots of funny appearances by his sister, also an executive producer, Audrey Plaza and Will Ferrell. Lena Olin, best known for dark, sexual roles, is a hoot as the girlfriend’s suspicious mom. 8 p.m. KARE, Ch. 11

The return of Edith Prickley

We haven’t seen much of Andrea Martin since her “SCTV” days, as the versatile actress has chosen to focus more on stage work. So it’s a real pleasure to see her back on the small screen in “Working the Engels,” a less-than-ambitious sitcom that shines every time she makes an appearance as an overly dramatic mother of a family facing bankruptcy. How long do we have to wait for a Catherine O’Hara cameo? 8:30 p.m. KARE, Ch. 11

Queen of LA

It’s a shame that Leah Remini never got an Emmy nomination for her work on “The King of Queens.” It’s an even bigger shame that Remini seems to be no longer interested in real acting and is relying on talk and reality shows. The latest, “Leah Remini: It’s All Relative,” focuses on her frank, and often turbulent, approach to domestic life. 9 p.m. TLC
